County Resources

Records at the county level are the responsibility of the following offices: birth, marriage, death, and land - register deeds; court - clerk of courts; probate - county probate court.

There is an abundance of county histories for the state of Wisconsin. Some are written for individual counties or several counties together, and others for sections of the state, such as John G. Gregory, Southwestern Wisconsin: A History of Old Crawford County, 4 vols. Chicago: S.J. Clark Pub. Co., 1932.

Wisconsin State Genealogical Society has published every-name indexes to a large number of these county and regional histories. Most, if not all, of the older histories are microfilmed and included in County Histories of the Old Northwest, Series 1: Wisconsin. New Haven, CT: Research Publications, n.d. This microfilm is available on interlibrary loan through the Wisconsin Historical Society. The films also include county directories, atlases, plat books, city histories, and biographical compendiums.
